HEALTH OF THE CHILD LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 12 March 1914

DHEALTH OF THE CHILI LESSON FROM NEW ZEALAND (By Mrs. J. A. Hobson in "Daily News and Leader.") There are many important things to be done in England before she can vindicate her claim to be a pattern of civilisation. About three of those things public opinion has been aroused, and we are promised small holdings, better housing, and higher wages. But if we are to reap the full benefit of these reforms there is a fourth no less important question which is just beginning to attract attention. What is the character of the homes in which the majority of the nation's children are being dragged up to-day? For both health and illness, like charity, begin at home. The difficul ties, although largely economic, are not entirely so. The medical officer of Islington says in a recent report: "There are far too many men who earn good wages living in homes that are most unsatisfactory in every way," and declares the ignorance of the 1vorking man's wife to be "something appalling"; that she is "wit...

RURAL WORKERS. Farmeprs Demand Protection. At the annual meeting of the Wagga Farmers' and Settlers' Association, a motion was submitted by Mr. Crouch for giving better protection to rural producers.

Crouch spoke of the un dustrial unrest caused by the A.W.U. in rural centres, and \trged that it police.were not able to protect farmers, there should be special constables en rolled in each locality, so that in the event of further trouble the farmers would be able to defend their pwn pperty. The only alternative was for them to take tie law into their own hands. Mr. Mulholland seconded the motion.

WIRELESS ROMANCE PROPOSAL BY MARCONIGRAM [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 12 March 1914

WIRELESS ROMANCE PROPOSAL BY MARCONIGRAM A boy and girl romance, which was thought to have ended ten years ago through a. proposal being lost in the post, now promises to end happily after all, so it is reported (says the New York cdrrespondent of "The Daily News and Leader" on Decem ber 30), following the arrival here from Europe of Mrs Frances Tonip son, a Scottish widow. It was the use of wireless telegraphy that repaired the error of the old fashioned mail system, for during her passage across the Atlantic Mrs Tomp son received by Marconigram a pro posal of marriage from an old suitor. Mr F. Macintyre, who Is now living at Superior. Wisconsin. Mrs Tompson and Mr Macintyre were boy and girl lovers in Scotland, both being residents of Leith, and the latter went to America to make his fortune. Ten years ago he wrote pro posing marriage, but the letter was evidently lost in the post, for Mrs Tompson did not receive it. Hearing nothing from her old sweetheart, Mrs Tompson married, bu...

"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 12 March 1914

"FLAPPER" AT THE DANCE (By Duncan Swann in "The Daily MaiL") It was her long mauve legs and the bow to match in her hair that first at tracted me as I leant against the ball room wall idly watching the gyrations of the dancers. She was waltzing with a youth from Eton at the time, of the same immature age as herself, and wore a look of profound boredom that I attributed partly to the unskilled movements of her partner, partly to the fact that the occasion was that anoma lous function, a Christmas party, at which all ages from 12 to 70 are repre sented and the young married women are in unfair request. Just as the band struck up the next item I crossed to where she was wrin kling her pretty forehead over the hieroglyphics on her programme. "Are you engaged for this?" I asked, with the unconscious patronage of the forties towards the teens. "I don't think we've been introduced," she replied with hauteur, tossing a mass of fair hair out of her eyes. "I-I beg your pardon," I stammered, t...

MILLIONS FOR WORKERS PROFIT-SHARING SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 12 March 1914

MILLIONS FOR WORKERS PROFIT-SHARING SCHEME. Mr Henry Ford's scheme to distri bute £2,000,000, representing approxi mately one-half of the profits of the Ford Motor Car Company, among the employes attracts universal attention (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Telegraph" on January 7). Additional details from Detroit, fur nished by the secretary of the com ppny, are to the effect that employes will share in the profits annually, and no employe over the age of 22, not eyen floor-sweepers, will receive less than £1 daily. Mr Henry Ford, the originator of the scheme, is quot, d as declaring that capital and labor hith erto have not shared profits to the ex teit they should. As to the possibility of losses, nothing definite is forthcom ing from Detroit so far, but every mechanic in the United States now contemplates offering his services to the Ford Motor Company. "The greatest revolution in the mat ter of rewards for workers ever known in the industrial world," is the de scr...

The dull, lethargic, heavy Mongols are bestirring themselves. They have long been in censed at the gradual encroachment of the Chinese traders and agriculturists upon their pasture lands. They have resented the Chinese demand on ther for military service. As long as the Manchu Emperors exercised over them a mild and lenient suzerainty they were willing to be included in the Chinese Empire. But when the Man chu Dynasty fell and the control came into the hands of the Chinese, to whose growing pressure on them they so much objected, then they revolted against such authority: they declared their independence of China; 4hey as serted their ancien...

TOURIMN PLANETS VOYAGE THROUGH SPACE. "First stop Mars." It sounds adven turous, but then if your car is the tele scope and your conductor Professor H. 1I.

In a flash on Saturday afternoon we were at the end of the first stage of the journey. True, we had not quite got the length of Mars, but the big telescope had used its seven league boots to some purpose, and before wondering eyes a big globe was floating on the screen, the planet Mars as near as human agency has so far brought it. We look ed for canals and possible signals from' the Martians, but whether it was that the inhabitants had not heard of our tour or were disgusted with the liberties taken with their sphere they made no sig...
